      Here's your "thanks for that review" review. For ~$30? go for it. Vehicle: 08/RAV4, Desired use: hands free calling and wireless music. Setup (may vary, banana plugs included in box): Aux cord from car to device, device on and paired with phone/iPod etc. PROS: +This device is tiny and extremely simple to use. (That tech stuff can get wacky) +Sound OUTPUT via aux is impressive (them tunes be bumpin y'all) +Non complicated design +Mostly analogue (which means it's going to last!) CONS: -Poor battery life (installed Sunday, used for avg. music listening while driving, and it's dead today -Tuesday) -INPUT sound quality (as in when speaking into the phone) is poor, my dad reports me sounding " like i'm in a tunnel" but if you refer to the pros list, I could hear him clear as a bell. -iPhone users: No Siri while using Bluetooth, but manual operation of Siri is still active (slightly counter productive, but still...) + Look ma, no hands! All in all, i'm mostly planted in the 21st century now with my fancy Bluetooth machine makin' them there cellular phone calls. I just have to be diligent about charging the device. I'm totally happy with it though. I have it mounted under a vent register by the steering wheel, it's out of the way and easy to operate without looking at it. Hope that helps! Don't even get suspicious, I did this fo free.

      Why didn't I invent this?

      Walked into BestBuy to get a simple 1/8" stereo cable to connect my old iPhone 4s to my car stereo AUX jack. As anyone probably knows, these kind of cables unless you spend $50.00 for the top of the line, only last about a year and invariably the strain relief wears out and the cable eventually shorts out and then dies altogether. So I went to BestBuy to get yet another in a long series of replacement cables, and the store associate recommended this Bluetooth adapter kit instead. I had to buy a dual-out USB cig lighter jack (also recommended by the associate) so that I can plug this and my phone into power simultaneously, and it did the trick. Now this thing stays plugged into power and AUX (concealed in the center console compartment where neither I nor a potential thief can see it) and is a huge upgrade to buying cables all the time. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I keep having to pair my phone to it, which requires me to open the center console and press the pairing/power button (first world problem, I know). I want to give a shout out to the Best Buy associate and Best Buy in general - the quality, professionalism, helpfulness, and knowledge of their associates in my local store (Geneva IL) has greatly improved on my last few trips there, compared with years past.

      Keeping your old wired headphones get this device

      I bought this bluetooth receiver because the wireless headphones that I have were not compatible with my DirecTV bluetooth wireless technology. So this device was connected to a bluetooth adapter (that I bought) coming out of the rca output of my satelite receiver. It was a kwirky way to connect some headphones (that were already bluetooth), but it worked great, and solved my problems! The t?predicament of mine was, was it worth doing adding of this receivers and adapters just replace my Sennheiser WIRELESS headphones? Here I was using a 3mm line plugged into this adapter (for bluetooth headphones that the blutooth technology was not compatible) just to get them to work out for me because i wad stuck with them because ir was a closeout sale (A1 Audio headphones). In the end, I couldn't justify spending more money on headphones that I was stuck with not being able to return, just to use them in this rigged way. So I ended up returning this adapter. The device worked great however!

      Ditching my phone-car radio AUX patch cord!

      Wanted alternative to a patch cord which required me opening headphone jack cover on my phone case each car ride use. Pros - Now able to take/make calls without unplugging un-mic'd patch cord. Very small, compact, lightweight... Cons-Came with large round 3M Velcro mounts - Swear Velcro hooks and loops could hold a 100lbs, but both of the adhesive outer tape surfaces do not adhere to Velcro bases very well and now not at all. The tape peeled off the velcro base and is now a pain to remove from my dash and back of unit. Unit is so lightweight that first time I dismounted it to charge, was afraid unit would snap in half trying to seperate velcro, lucky the adhesive failed...another lesson learned - charger cable is not very long so consider mounting proximity close to charge source. All in all.. like unit.

      This product has served me very well in turning my aux-only vehicle into a Bluetooth receiver from my phone. It's very nice to just get in the car and have my phone ready to play music without having to fiddle with wires. I always keep it plugged into the port that turns on when my car does, and sometimes this starts up the Bluetooth receiver without me having to press anything! (Sometimes I have to hold the on-button, but that doesn't bother me). The SINGLE caveat I have with this is that the microphone is finicky. The first one I got actually didn't seem to have a mic at all as I never got it to work, so I returned it as defective and replaced it; the second one's Mic works about 85% of the time. That 15% (and lack of storage on my main iPhone) has caused me to switch over to playing music from my iPod touch, so I can still take calls without ever having to worry about the mic not working. Still though, good product overall

      Portable Bluetooth

      Needed to add bluetooth to my vehicle using the AUX in located in my vehicle. This did the trick as I am now able to bluetooth stream from tablet, smart phone, or any device that allows bluetooth connectivity. Sound them comes from your vehicle speakers as if your listening to a CD or XM radio. Unit has internal battery that charges so USB power isnt necessairly needed while using the unit. Whatever your device is playing it can now be heard from your car speakers as if you had bluetooth from car manufacturer. Its small form factor allows unit to be discretely placed at your desire. Can also be used to turn headphones, ie Beats, that use AUX jack to make them wireless bluetooth, with the exception of a small cord and the unit hanging from headphone. Definitely eliminates the need to have cable fished under your shirt or jacket while doing things.

      5 stars for performance, ease of set up and consistency in connection. 1 star for it sticking straight out from your auxiliary port. The store had another bluetooth receiver in the shape of a round coat button with the port on the back but This one I believe had additional features that I thought I would like. If you want unobtrusive go for the other brand they carry however I can tell you that this one has worked flawlessly except the first night. I was in my house on a call and it begin to try to connect to the bluetooth. I disconnected in my menu and no problems since. Big downfall on the person in corporate planogramming the store I was in as there were 3 bluetooths all in separate locations in the store.

      Does the job and Im really happy about this product. You can turn your wired headphones into wireless ones. This is good for iPhone 7 users. I was surprised when I opened the box, I was expecting the device to be big but its super small. Its 1/3 the size of an iPhone 7 so I advise people to be very careful not to lose this product as its very small so have it somewhere safe. Also I like the pouch that came with the Reciever its really stylish. (It may be stylish for some people and it may not for others). This product will last around 5-7 hours Of usage (Sound may vary due to the earbuds or headphones you may use with this product) Thats pretty much it, hopefully I get to buy again it when its on sale sometime soon
